Welcome to the U.S. Fish & Wildlife’s Ferret Cam!
I was sent this link through my e-mail at the USGS National Wildlife Health Center where I work as a librarian assistant. I was really interested in checking it out because one of the important things the center I work at does is help prevent black-footed ferrets catching the plague. One of their main forms of prey is prairie dogs who are highly susceptible to the plague and pass it on to the black-footed ferrets. This cam lets us look at the work done at our center in a different perspective.
With all that said, I’m also bringing it to you because Two-bit is adorable! When you load up the site, you’ll find introductory text, the two live feeds, and then links to more information.
If you’re viewing in the morning or early afternoon, you’ll want to start with the video feed on the right side of the page, because Two-bit is probably sleeping in her underground enclosure. If you’re checking in the evening, use the feed on the left first to catch Two-bit frolicking in her above ground enclosure.
When you’re done spending time with Two-bit, I recommend checking out the links beneath the video area that offer more information on the black-footed ferret species, conservation efforts, fact sheet, and even photos.
This is a great way to pass the time in the summer. Go check it out for yourself today!
